Section 1: Welcome to PostScripts
What is PostScripts?
PostScripts is a prescription home delivery service offered through Rexall Direct. PostScripts provides an easy, safe and convenient way to get prescriptions. You can now have prescriptions delivered right to your door at no additional cost.
How will this new program affect my prescription coverage?
PostScripts has been specifically designed to lower drug costs with no change in the prescription(s) that you are currently receiving. You will first need to sign up for the program online. Then, you will purchase ALL maintenance (chronic) medications through PostScripts as long as you are deemed stabilized* on the medication. Acute medications can still be purchased at any retail pharmacy.
Stabilized means that you have received 90 days of medication (same DIN) within the previous four months.
What cost saving opportunities are available with PostScripts?
With PostScripts you will receive a discount card that entitles you and your family members to a discount on all Rexall-branded products. Discounted products include Be.better, KIT, Rose & Robin and Nosh & Co. at all participating Rexall or Pharma Plus locations. These products include over 1,800 everyday items from bath and beauty, household cleaning supplies, vitamins and cough medicines. Some exclusions apply and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.

Section 3: Filling Your Prescriptions
What is the difference between maintenance and acute medication?
Maintenance medications are those drugs that a doctor has prescribed for regular (i.e. daily) use, and include, but are not limited to, drugs for diabetes, cholesterol, asthma, high blood pressure, hormone therapy and birth control. Drugs needed for an emergency, such as an antibiotic or a painkiller, are called acute medications.
Can Rexall Direct fill my acute medications?
Yes, Rexall Direct can fill your acute medications. However, we strongly recommend you check with your prescribing physician first as some medications need to be taken immediately. These should be filled through a local retail pharmacy.
What if I need to take my maintenance medication right away?
Ask your doctor for two prescriptions: one for a short-term supply and one for a 90-day supply. Have the short-term supply filled immediately at your local pharmacy (your drug plan coverage may differ when getting your prescription filled at a retail pharmacy), and send the 90-day supply prescription to Rexall Direct. If you have an existing prescription, call 1-888-Rx-2-DOOR (1-888-792-3667) to have us transfer your prescription to Rexall Direct. Remember, it will take 3 to 5 business days to have your prescription delivered to you.
How does my prescription get to Rexall Direct?
Your original prescriptions can be mailed to your PostScripts' partner - Rexall Direct (Refer to Contact Us section for address). For faster service, your prescription may be telephoned by your doctor's office to 1-800-561-DRMD (1-800-561-3763) or faxed by your doctor's office to 1-800-563-8934.
Can I fax my prescription directly to Rexall Direct?
No, your prescription may be faxed by your doctor's office to 1-800-563-8934 or telephoned by your doctor's office to 1-800-561-DRMD (1-800-561-3763). To comply with legislation, your doctor’s office must retain the original prescription on file.
Do I need to transfer my prescription from another pharmacy to Rexall Direct?
Yes. If you are currently receiving maintenance medication from a retail pharmacy (e.g. Rexall), you must arrange to have your prescription(s) transferred to Rexall Direct prior to the effective date indicated by your plan administrator because all maintenance prescriptions dispensed by a pharmacy other than Rexall Direct after this date may not be covered by your plan.
